To address the challenge and position UW–Madison scientists for the future, the Morgridge Institute for Research, part of the new Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, has slated the first symposium on the Integration of the Mathematical and Biological Sciences, to be held Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 2-3.
The Morgridge Institute for Research and the Graduate School are sponsoring a two-day symposium open to faculty and academic staff interested in exploring the interfaces connecting the mathematic, computational and biological sciences, and the major impact of these evolving interactions on research, education, training and discovery.
For well over a decade, mathematics professor Terry Millar has worked to improve math and science instruction for students at all levels by bringing together the knowledge of university mathematicians and scientists with the teaching and curricular expertise of educators.
Seven of UW–Madison’s rising faculty have received H.I. Romnes Faculty Fellowships. The award, supported by the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF), recognizes great potential in faculty who have earned tenure within the last four years. Award-winners receive a $50,000 award to be used in support of research.
